# How to draw a battleship

**Grid step**

You can print out the base construction lines and start drawing on tracing paper or you can draw the grid layout yourself using the following steps… Show more

1) Draw a rectangle that will define the conditional proportions and boundaries of the chosen drawing.

2) From the middle of the rectangle, draw one vertical and one horizontal line equally dividing the shape.

3) Draw another horizontal line equally dividing the upper half of the rectangle. Similarly, draw a horizontal line equally dividing the bottom half of the rectangle.

4) Draw a vertical line equally dividing the left half of the rectangle. Similarly, draw a vertical line equally dividing the right half of the rectangle.

**Step 1**

Mark off the width and height of the battleship, its body and masts. Draw some guidelines and the deck.

**Step 2**

Add lines to define the portside and the bow of the battleship.

**Step 3**

Define all bases for the superstructures.

**Step 4**

Continue working on the superstructures.

**Step 5**

Add more stories to the superstructure, poop and constructions for the weapons.

**Step 6**

Add lines to specify the shapes of the battleship hull. Define places for the guns.

**Step 7**

Work on the whole figure, paying special attention to detail.

**Step 8**

Contour the battleship, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add the sea. Erase all guidelines.
